    I'm really stoked for this Hobbit stuff, but some of those prices seem....awfully high. Doesn't seem to mesh with the other LotR stuff being of more value for the money, model wise.

    I'm just excited to see what is being produced, but the prices have me rankling a bit.

    I can't say muchdue to Non-Disclosure Policy etc but that list is probably a good guide to go by. I've got my Hobbit stuff ready and it'll be going online at 11:59pm THIS Friday over on my site at http://www.greendragongames.co.uk/ - if anybody orders any Hobbit stuff from me, PM me and I'll throw in a small freebie item for Bell of Lost Souls people.

    Also, I would imagine that retailers like myself and others will be doing it at a good 25% off RRP - So excited! Make sure you check out White Dwarf too for a full breakdown of whats happening

    Just as a heads up, got all my Hobbit products online at various % off RRP. Limited Editions literally sold out within 10 minutes, but still got standards in stock and all the other bits too!

    Enjoy! And on orders over £80, if you PM me your order number I'll throw in November's white Dwarf for free (the one with all the chaos in).

    EDIT: At time of typing 1am, I have ONE limited edition box set left due a mistaken order.

    I see the Radagast model is only in the limited edition version, he's the only miniature i'd really want as I am a massive fan of Sylvester McCoy (was the best damn doctor who!) so I will go to ebay for that

    all looks okay though, to me. Bit shocking at the Trolls price though...don't normally complain about the prices of the Plastic Kits, but that one jumps out at me! the prices of the other plastic kits are all pretty good (as is par for LOTR infantry and cavalry kits).

    I really want to hear the reason why the White Council figures are 75 USD for four relatively small models.

    Otherwise I think all of the miniatures look fantastic. If I was a fan of the game system I'd be super-excited but, fortunately for my pocket-book, I dislike the game system.

    They're $125 in Australia! We're on parity with you guys at the moment.
    They're just taking the piss with prices - that's literally a few dollars short of double the exchange rate. GW are dreaming if they think this is going to be anywhere as big an impact as LotR was.

    And they still can't get Galadrial to look right. I'll be sticking to the Lego sets.

    Will be investing next month, on account I remain a bit Skint.

    As for the White Council, it may be to do with royalties or some such. Certainly they need the actor's approval before releasing a sculpt of them.

    I highly doubt it. It'd be like action figures and so on where the actor's contract includes allowing the use of their likeness for merchandising and promotional things. GW would get to use designs and likenesses as part of the licensing.

    While I agree that Galadrial doesn't look quite right, this model is far above the previous incarnations. That is a particularly awesome looking Gandalf in my opinion as well.

    I'm also confused because the White Council had additional members such as Cirdan the Shipwright (who previously bore Narya before Gandalf), Glorfindel, and Radaghast.
